Could Of Been Some Great AP Sports Writing

...But it wasn't. This article by AP Sports Writer Tom Canavan appeared in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, One of America's Great Newspapers.

Flight 522 from Newark carrying 122 passengers landed at Pittsburgh International Airport, where medical personnel treated the two people who were bitten.

McDonald's - Purveyors of Fine Oatmeals

McDonald's is going to be rolling out an oatmeal item to its more than 14,000 restaurants on Jan. 3, according to this article in Nation's Restaurant News. Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, which has been in test since earlier this year, will be available all day long, with or without brown sugar, for $1.99. The item contains 290 calories with sugar and 260 calories without it.

Maybe this will allow them to sell Happy Meals again in San Francisco.
